Our great supporter Federation Square is sponsoring the use of the state of art stunning glass 'skin' amphitheatre and conference centre, DeakinEdge for our Laughter Summit. As usual they will also sponsor us to use the Saint Paul's Step (Busker's Pitch)for World Laugher Day Celebrations.

Great news to share! We have also been very lucky in securing abrand new partner (all will be revealed during our event) as our Official Community Partner. In addition to sponsoring our Laughter Summit and World Laughter Day Celebrations, they will be supporting LCVi throughout the year.

LCVi is delighted to announce that we have two x 2-Day Certified Laughter Leader Training to be won during the event, each valued at $389. We will be having a raffle draw and a 'Happy Interview' for 2 lucky winners. These 2 x sponsored training days from our brand new partner will be announced on the day, and they are conditional that the winners start a community Laughter Club under the LCVi banner, after they complete their training.

For some of you who are curious with happy expectations on who our presenters are, check this out:

Our keynote speaker is our founder Dr Madan Kataria (you can connect with him ,larger than life on the big screen) and our other speakers/team are our very own LCVi members. The 3.00 to 3.30pm Slot is by the dynamic team from East Brighton Laughter Club (LC), Albert Park LC and Frankston LC, a must see sensational team presenting Starting Them Young, Laughter with Children". Please encourage your friends with kids and grandkids to come.

You would be happy to know that we have a special guest Susan Dustin for the 3.30 to 4.00pm Slot "Laughter with Senior's/Golden Opportunity into the Golden Years". Susan has been a volunteer worker for 41 years throughout 30 countries around the world, working predominantly in Thailand, and will be presenting a very special session on Laughter and Rhythm for Living and Dying Well.  

Don't miss the opportunity of watching all that is new in the World of Laugher Yoga International on the big screen. There is a lot on offer for all of us to be excited from Laughter Yoga International, so expect to know what is happening around the world and revel in it.

We are also going to be linked via skype to a few different areas, maybe around the world, and with our country clubs and our interstate clubs. We arealso very happy to have South Australia LC representative with us on the day.

The LYS & WLD flier comes with the agenda/program for the day. Please feel free to staythe whole time or pick and choose what interests you most - we have something for everyone. What would be great would be to have you the whole time and enjoy every bit that has been planned meticulously for your enjoyment and continuing knowledge. 

Just a note - this event is not just for members, all are welcome ,so please get your family and anyone you think would benefit from this first time special event to come along. Please pass the word around to past club members and potential members as well for you can be assured this is going to be a block buster.

A gentle reminder to LCVimembers - please wear your LCVi T-shirt proudly. If you don't have one, you can buy one from our LCVi Vice President Jim for a special price of $30. (We have all sizes, cash transaction).

If the rain comes acalling, we would stay put at Deakin Edge otherwise World Laughter Day Celebrations would be at St Paul's Steps (Busker's Pitch), Federation Square.
